Notes & Reviews:

In collaboration with Yvonne Lang, Ada Meinich, Bernd Glemser and the Cincinnati Philharmonia Orchestra, Dimitri Ashkenazy presents some of the most exciting works for clarinet by French composer Jean Francaix. Ashkenazy writes of Jean Francaix's music: "I have been a fan of Franciax's music since the first time I heard one of his pieces, which was sometime in my youth at the old Kunsthaus in Lucerne. Hans-Rudolf Stalder played his Tema convariazioni (the second piece on this release) in the version with string orchestra accompaniment. I loved the spirit, the subtle use of harmony, the humor, but also the introspection." Dimitri Ashkenazy lives in Switzerland and enjoys a worldwide touring career as well as a successful recording career.
